These Sherlock watercolors by DeviantArt artist Goush are just lovely.

I really like this fan-made Twelfth Doctor intro. (Minus the whole Jenna Coleman bit, mind you.)

In gaming news, from TGG:

I love the use of space in Ibrahim Moustafa's Avengers series.

There's something very impressionist painting about Dorez Romain's superheroes.

In SCIENCE! and tech news, from the Mister:

I also found a couple of items of interest:

The Swedish Harry Potter covers are way creepier than the U.S. versions, but man is that Deathly Hallows cover (last one) beautiful!

This interactive Eff/Marry/Kill with the Harry Potter characters is super hilarious. (Thanks, Samar!)

In toy and fashion news:

And finally, thank you to all of the lovely women who sent this my way yesterday (Ipsi, Rebecca, Erin, Amanda and Soleil—I <3 you.)

  3. Jen and I *JUST* got into Doctor Who and... I am so, so utterly in love with the series. I decided we'd start with series 5, because the first episode captured me so. It's everything I could possibly love in a TV series. I've been a fan of space, planets, black holes, stars, time travel, etc. since I was a REALLY little girl. I'm so sad I just got into the show, right when the actor is leaving. Blah. x.x I am also crushed that True Blood is ending. We've read the series, and watched every season.

    On the plus side, Tinkerbell is adorbs and I think Jen and I need to give Once Upon A Time a try! I'm curious about the show based on Outbreak, because I watched that movie as a little girl, with my parents, and thought 'tis was rather good.

    A Mass Effect movie. ♥

    THOSE RAINY THOR AND LOKI POSTERS, OMGGGG. (I think the characters are awesome, and I love stormy weather!)

    I am totally curious about a LEGO MMO. MMOs are my fav genre.

    The Xbox LIVE giving people a "fresh start" is BS in my opinion. Working for Xbox, I would never ever give those people a fresh start... But maybe I'm biased, because I had everything they said, and did and a lot of them and I got bitter over how others were treated.

    The twilight phenomena is stunning!

    FUNKO!!! THANK YOUUUU!!! Jen has Tyrion Lannister and Cersei, and I definitely need Loki! Also, I love the Swedish HP covers!

  5. UGGGGHHH I want to watch the Divergent trailers SO BAD! but Im right in the middle of the book and I dont want any influence!! But I love it - im so excited!

  6. "I just made the correlation between your name and what I'm about to eat" - adorable. That Downton trailer made me misty. Whenever Mary cries and Carson comforts her - I'm a sucker for that. He's like her real dad! The SDCC footage of the 50th anniversary special of DW was so squeal-worthy that I just can't wait for the episode.

  7. I'm still jealous you got to attend. (But in a good way.) I'm hoping we can go next year—perhaps we can finally meet up! <3

  8. They're SUPER generic, but it's probably a good idea to wait. I'm glad you're enjoying it! I am very excited for the movie, but I'm trying to keep my hopes steady.

  9. Hiddles is the best, and so good at creating feels on both sides of the spectrum.

  10. Goodness! It's so awesome that you read these posts so fully. <3


    I'm glad you're getting into Doctor Who! Always glad to hear of another person becoming a fan. :)

  11. I stopped watching True Blood a few seasons ago. It just stopped being interesting, even with the draw of Eric.
